Pull selected files from git repo in AWS

Hi I am new to code repositories and I am trying to create a custom action that allows me to pull only selected files from a AWS hosted codecommit repository. Where can I find examples or information on what I would need to complete this?

Hi @Pasquale Tedesco,

Welcome to Atlassian Community!

The concept of Git is that your local repository is a complete copy of the remote repository.  That being said, you can do a sparse clone of a repository by creating an empty repository locally and link it to the remote repository. 

mkdir <repo>
cd <repo>
git init
git remote add -f origin <URL> 

Once you created the empty repository you need to configure what it should pull from the remote.

git config core.sparseCheckout true

Now you need to tell Git which files you want to checkout by adding the paths to sparse-checkout

echo "some/dir" >> .git/info/sparse-checkout

And the last step is to pull from the remote

git pull origin master

Thank you for this information. I will try this and see how far I can get.

Hi  @Mikael Sandberg

Is there an easy way to achieve something like this in Sourcetree.Export.jpg

@Mikael Sandberg Just in case this comes up else where the solution I was able to find that best met our needs was the following.

1) Add new custom action
2) Script to run: Map path to 7zip.exe
3) Parameters: a C:\path\to\desktop\folder\$ $FILE
4) Save Custom action and resart SourceTree
5) Open Repository
6) Select files to download
7) Right Click > Custom Action > select new custom action
